– For all of you who follow blender, this is probably old news, in any case, I couldn’t leave it behind –
About 3 weeks ago the Teaser for the Feature Film of the agent 327 was released through vimeo, youtube and facebook, many big animation news sites have featured it already because of how good it is.
Agent 327 is a James Bond/Maxwell Smart-like Dutch secret agent who fights for “Righteousness and World Peace”; Often partnered with Olga Lawina (an agent of the Swiss Secret Service), his adventures take him around Europe and the rest of the world as he battles numerous villains, both fictional and parodies of real people.
The whole idea of this teaser is to show the power of blender and the artistic quality that the team of the newly branded Blender Animation Studio can achieve and that way be able to find funding partners to produce a whole feature film based entirely in the power of Blender also aiding it’s further development.
As a member of the “Blender Cloud” (platform that they have for showcasing materials, tutorials, assets, etc) it was really nice to be able to follow most of the process, from early storyboards, to final renders, and finish up seeing such a powerful and compelling result like this.
I not only encourage you to check out the teaser right here, but also to join the Blender Cloud platform and support further development of this great tool and also all the great films they’re making.
